Taiye Idahor on CCA Lagos at ISCP

Taiye Idahor will speak about how physical and mental space impacts her work, including her installation on view as part of CCA Lagos at ISCP.

Idahor grew up in Lagos, Nigeria. Her work deals with concepts of female identity, with “hair” as a recurring theme. She is interested in issues of trade, beauty, the environment and globalization in relation to present-day Africa.

Salon: Bita Razavi and Yvonne Mullock

Bita Razavi will speak about the influence of populist and nationalist-oriented movements on her practice. She will discuss a few of her works in relation to the rise of populist parties in different countries leading to her current project, Coloring Book for Concerned Adults, which she is working on during her ISCP residency.

Yvonne Mullock’s multidisciplinary art practice explores materiality and the processes embodied in the act of making. Ideas relating to the handmade, thriftiness and care have manifested in a number of projects. Mullock will present her most recent work Dark Horse, a short film that brings together familiar tropes in cowboy culture to inform an experimental horse-centric printmaking method. She will also discuss Desktop, an animation that pivots around rummage sales and fruiting fungi using processes of timelapse and cutout animation.

Salon: Areej Kaoud and Lukáš Machalický

Areej Kaoud’s art practice investigates emergency provisions through data accumulation, performance art, painting, writing and voice recordings. Her projects are layered and articulate the distances between anxiety, preparedness and the humor which takes place in preparing for non-immediate anticipated threats. Kaoud will speak about recent works in relation to the subject matter she has been exploring at ISCP, leading up to her current residency project Wrong Place, Wrong Time, Right Body, 2017. Her presentation will include a short performance demonstrating her interest in easing a state of anxiety by training to increase personal and psychological durability through vocal play.

Lukáš Machalický’s art installations can be read as essays that thematically cover, or wordlessly comment, on diverse social phenomena without confronting the viewer with a thesis. His works always have formal or architectural concerns; deviations, volatility, ambiguity and system failure all play a key role in his art. During his presentation, Machalický will speak about his previous and current work, as well as SPZ Gallery in Prague, which he co-founded in 2011.
